Simon's story

Simon, an industrious farmer, aspires to provide better healthcare for his family from farm profits. He gets access to improved farming services as a member of Babban Gona, which helps him increase his productivity. He is also now farming in a more sustainable manner as a result of training programs. Simon's agronomy teaching, for example, focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to reduce environmental effects while increasing yields. Simon anticipates harvesting 40 bags/hectare of maize this year, more than doubling the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare. He will receive cash equivalent to the worth of his maize at harvest as a result of this Harvest Advance loan. Babban Gona will then assist him in storing his maize and selling it at a better price over the next 6 to 9 months, ensuring higher returns. This is significant for Simon because he intends to use the proceeds from this harvest to provide better healthcare for his family.
